Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler has made tremendous strides cleaning up his fundamentals this offseason, according to quarterbacks coach Matt Cavanaugh. "I've seen incredible progress," Cavanaugh said. "When we got in here last year & evaluated him we had a real good conversation with him about certain things that every quarterback should do. We said, 'Jay it might not be natural, but we want you to try it.' And he did"
"To his credit, he's taken every suggestion we've given and he's embraced it. From how he holds the ball to how he lines up in the`Gun' pre-snap to how he drops back, to his throwing base to his follow-through. Every little fundamental we've talked to him about, he's embraced, and it's like night & day."
